Growing white eggplant, sometimes referred to as “goose eggs eggplant,” can be a rewarding experience. Here are some tips to help you grow large and beautiful white eggplants:
Choose a white eggplant variety known for producing large and beautiful fruits. Some popular varieties include ‘Casper,’ ‘Cloud Nine,’ and ‘Easter Egg.’
White eggplants, like other eggplant varieties, prefer well-draining soil with a pH level between 5.8 and 6.5. Amend the soil with organic matter such as compost to improve fertility and drainage.
Start seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date in your area. Transplant seedlings into the garden once the soil has warmed up and there is no risk of frost.
Space the plants about 18 to 24 inches apart to allow for proper air circulation.
White eggplants thrive in full sunlight. Ensure they receive at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily.
Plant them in a location where they won’t be shaded by taller plants.
Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Eggplants prefer evenly moist soil, especially during flowering and fruiting.
Mulch around the plants to help retain soil moisture and suppress weeds.
